How To Turn Your Apartment In A Pandemic-Friendly Showroom?

We’ve become extra creative during the past months. Designing and producing without showing new creations is a challenging endeavor so that a pandemic-friendly showroom might answer that need. Architects Clio Dimofski and Olivier Garcé are part of PierreYovanivitch’s team and opened a new New York branch. In an effort to share new designs and with the help of friends and gallerists, they turned their West Village apartment into an intimate gallery space that was safe but still enabled people to see new work on appointment.


“The main intention was to bring together a group of friends, but it was also to present Ian’s new collection in a living environment.The task was to create new works, assemble forgotten pieces, and open up conversation about how these components would live together in the same place. Clio and I live on the third floor of a light-flooded prewar brownstone, the perfect stage for such a collaboration.”
Olivier Garcé



The showroom featured works from Ian FeltonGreen River Project, R & Company, and Gabriella Picone, among others. Garcé believes the concept to evolve as time goes on in different locations.
